Viva-TV, an IBC 13 special program totally dedicated to sports, most specially the NBA games and PBA games, has sent a 17-man crew to cover events in all venues.
Filipinos who wish to watch the action will have the chance practically throughout the day because Viva-TV is basically a primetime block, whose programs are produced by Viva Sports and broadcast on Channel 13.
Viva-TV has on schedule a complete coverage, aired on a slightly delayed basis, of such sports as athletics, boxing, volleyball, badminton, bowling, billiards, taekwando, wushu, swimming and basketball from an arrangement with the Philippine hosts on IBC.
PTV-4, having the most complete facilities of the two, will have the ability to cover most venues, including those in the provinces, while IBC-13, which has the strongest link in Metro Manila will handle some events in the Metro Manila and nearby provinces will cover those which will by the two other networks.
Although Indonesia has waived TV rights, Channel 13 now making a full coverage as the host TV crews will provide. This explains the lean TV team assigned to the SEA Games.
With one-game on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and two-games on Sundays Viva-TV will provide highlights of the SEA Games during the quarter and halftime breaks of PBA games and possibly do subliminal and casual mentions of the events during the PBA games.
ABS-CBN is also sending a 19-man team and is presenting practically the same format as its rival station although on a limited time slot when PTV-4 also sending a 15-man team. Also, with TV5, AKTV and AksyonTV this December 2013.
Filipinos will thus have chance to watch the the SEA Games through Viva-TV or any of the carrying stations from giant networks GMA an ABS-CBN. While Viva-TV on IBC will be practically the whole day this April 2013.
